I was able to find a way to delete a single user with this script:

Const ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR = 1

Set objUser = GetObject _
   ("LDAP://cn=johns smith,ou=contractors,ou=stlouis,dc=axi,dc=aic,dc=com")
 
objUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR, "streetAddress", 0
objUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR, "postofficebox", 0
objUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR, "l", 0
objUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR, "st", 0
objUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR, "c", 0
objUser.SetInfo

However, I am need to be able to delete multiplle users address information within an OU and I do not know how to do that.  Does anyone?

You can use this code.
On Error Resume Next
Const ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR = 1

strOU = "LDAP://OU=MyOU,DC=domain,DC=com"
'Set rootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
'strDomain = "LDAP://" & rootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")

strfilter = "(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=User))"
strAttributes = "adspath"
strScope = "onelevel"

Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objcommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
objcommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection

objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
objCommand.Properties("Timeout") = 600
objCommand.Properties("Cache Results") = True

'Execute Query
objCommand.CommandText = "<" & strOU & ">;" & strFilter & ";" & strAttributes & ";" & strScope
Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute

Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
	Set objUser = GetObject(objRecordSet.Fields("adspath").Value)
		objUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR, "streetAddress", 0
		objUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR, "postofficebox", 0
		objUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR, "l", 0
		objUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR, "st", 0
		objUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR, "c", 0
		objUser.SetInfo
    objRecordSet.MoveNext
Loop

Open in new window
